Managing your forum?

Post by JazeonX on September 7th 2010, 1:04 pm

I really wanna talk to different Administrator who made their own forum community on how they were able to attract people out or how is your forum currently now?
I just wanna talk about your forum.
Because I've been here in Forumotion like since it started and I really had a hard time inviting people out maybe I would learn a lot of things from you guys.

Try advertising on others forums (might be against rules) or offer interesing content.

If you clearly understood my post it wasn't even advertising but I wanted to discuss or interact with other administrator who owns forum on how they got a lot of members in their forum.

Hey Jazeon Smile

From what I've been able to gather from personal experience, I'd say it's best to have at most 2 administrators. If one is good enough then so be it, but avoid the dangers of having more. The obvious start is because Admin is a place with high powers and responsabilities. Also, Admins are the leader, and leaders generally are not the ones who dfo the best team work. It's generally easier to keep the final decision making within a reduced number of people. that being said, I used to run my forums with 4 Admins, one being clearly defined ad Head Admin.

For as far as staff are concerned, I've always believed it a good idea to keep officials at minimum levels. Moderators classically have Police-man type roles. As such, the less there are the less people feel forced. Then again, some forums (ie; specialised forums) need an extensive staff to carry out a certain function. That ofcourse is always a choice the leading team must make.

For as far as attracting members, I'd say the best things are:
> Simple, but appealing, management
> Interesting content
> Acitivities that can make members "loyal" to your site
> Passion, the biggest engin around

Well, it is very difficult.
I know from experience. I have a hard time finding members for my forum. (It's about band Evanescence, so there don't join those who don't know them.. :/ )
But, if you try and if you love it. You must work. Smile
So, don't give up.

During Forumotion started I joined the community directly and started establishing my very own forum and inviting a lot of friends.
And I will still work hard to get a lot of members to join my very own forum community.

I was one of the founders of Mobile Passion forum(outside Forumotion) and I remember that within 10 days, we had almost 4000 users. And all we had done was a good advertisement project. We sent invites for some friends, then the friends sent to others. Then we done some ads to put on some sites that had the same theme. Then we had the success that it is.

I'm starting my own community now. And after I setup everything, I will start the advertisement plan. Wink

Good Luck!

I personally run my forum with little limitations. My forum right now has a skin that I'm 99% sure isn't available anymore to forummotion which makes it unique. I also code things myself that other forummotion sites don't have. Start out with at most 2 moderators and then try inviting all your friends. You won't have a popular forum overnight.

For example my site. I created it around 2-3 years ago. Only until around several months ago do I start working hard on it and trying to get it to be a good community. Now I have 70 members with over 6000 posts. It's still not super active but that's an example of how long it can take.


Sorry for my bad grammar I'm just tired tonight.

Stay long received slightly larger women generally wear ear clip, or earrings, or drape type, For as far as staff are concerned, I've always believed it a good idea to keep officials at minimum levels. Moderators classically have Police-man type roles. As such, the less there [spam removed] are the less people feel forced. Then again, some forums (ie; specialised forums) need an extensive staff to carry out a certain function. That ofcourse is always a choice the leading team must make.

Why create a forum

Post by fforumadm on October 29th 2010, 11:39 pm

In our situation, we actually have a forum in our organisation, but due to the web administrator several time changed in discussions ont the forums web page, we needed to have an independent forum, where the members could be sure, that no censur was made.

BR,
Anne
